Chairman of the Bangladesh Securities and
Exchange Commission (BSEC) Professor Shibli Rubayat Ul Islam today said
foreign investors are interested in investing in Bangladesh’s big projects
because the country is providing adequate facilities for the investors.
“Bangladesh’s economy is moving fast. The size of the upcoming projects is
thousands crore. It is not possible to give any solution only with equity
market. So, we are working on bond. The market size of the conventional bonds
and Sukuk are over trillions of dollars. They can’t find a place to invest,”
The BSEC chairman was speaking at a press conference at the BSEC
conference room after a roadshow in Dubai.
BSEC organised the four-day roadshow in Dubai from February 9-12 as part
of its efforts to attract foreign investors and non-resident Bangladeshis
(NRBs) to the country’s bourses.
Shibli Rubayat Ul Islam said BSEC showcased Bangladesh’s economic
situation at a road show in Dubai.
“In the roadshow, the investors wanted to know many things. We informed
them all things. They decided what to do now. Now, we get mail every day.
Some of them want to invest in mutual funds. They suggest us what kind of
correction is needed there,” he added.
He said BSEC hope that the roadshow will play a vital role in improving of
the country’s capital market.
